Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and great start to the new year. We have been hard at work, playing new music, updating our equipment and generally just having fun. Last year, we had the opportunity to have one of our good friends, Allison Weiser, take some pictures for us, so I thought I’d add a few of them here. Let us know what you think!
Yes, it is official…we are now recording artists! Now you (yes YOU!) can buy our songs on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and other digital download places. The EP is self titled and contains four songs….Folsom Prison Blues, Animal, Ain’t No Sunshine and Green Horse Lounge. If you have the chance, please go out and buy it…I promise you won’t be disappointed. And you can then help support us as we look to our next project!
You guys are all awesome and we appreciate everything our fans, family and friends do for us!!!!
Got quite a few gigs lined up for the next couple of months. First, I (Abe) had the opportunity to play a benefit concert for the American Cancer Society at The Greenfield Inn in Lancaster. The crowd was great and it was all to benefit a great cause!!
We are also going to be playing Friday, June 20th at the Strasburg Shoppes (1 West Main Street), so I look forward to see you all come out then. And you can ALWAYS look at our gig page to see the most recent gig postings or follow us on the Timbre App!!
Ok, I just couldn’t wait any longer…Here is our version of Folsom Prison Blues!!
We have been working hard at finalizing our first demo. We want to get the songs up as quickly as we can to share with you, but they are not quite ready yet. We are hoping to have them finalized in the next few weeks, so that many of the venues we have spoken with can hear them and get a better picture of what we bring to the audience.
One of the most amazing things we noticed during the recording process is how much of a difference using good microphones that are correctly positioned makes. The quality of the demos is AMAZING compared to the quality of what we have on our songs page. Guess my Mac’s built in mic just doesn’t really cut it!
Again, we are totally excited to share our songs with you so please keep checking back!!!
Now that we have survived the Holidays, Valentines Day and St. Paddy’s day (the last being the most difficult…), we are announcing that we have hit the studio to make our first recordings. Here’s a pic or two, but check out the picture page for more! And of course, as soon as we get it all mixed and mastered, we will make the recordings available for everyone. SOOOOO Excited!!!!
Ok, we got some more exciting news for y’all! Our good friend, Tony Porter, has agreed to join Dusty Fender to be our lead guitar! Now, with Tony P and Tony Mac shredding the guitars, George make our faces melt on the drums, and Abe singing…WOW! What a show! Heck, this news is so late breaking, we haven’t even had a chance to update the website to include Tony P!
We also got a nice little write up from Alex and Jack from the Lancaster Intelligencer Journal. Here is the write up:
• Elsewhere in the local music scene, Abe Breslin recently dropped us a line to introduce his band, Dust[y] Fender. The foursome — Breslin on guitar and lead vocals, George Roberts on drums, Tony Porter on lead guitar and Tony Mac on guitar and vox — play country, blues and good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll. Sounds good to us.
The final pieces of the band’s lineup recently came together, and they’re currently working on a four- or five-track EP they plan to release in the spring.
For now, check them out at www.dustyfender.com and on Twitter at @dstyfendermusic.

Hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday and keep on Rockin’!
Here we are, at the holidays! We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you enjoy this season with your family and friends.
We have a few gigs coming up including at the Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse PA this Friday. should be a good time as we have guest guitarist Tony Parker filling in. Of course, we are excited to play with Tony for two reason…1) he’s an amazing guitar player and 2) Abe doesn’t have to think of new jokes as he can use his old tired Tony Mac jokes…
Enjoy the season and we hope to see you all out soon. And BE SAFE!!!
Just want to let you all know that we are hard at work, looking to bring the best music to you, our fans and friends. On an exciting front, we are glad to welcome George “The Animal” Roberts to the Dusty Fender family! George is going to be playing some drums for us and we are excited about having a new member of the family.
We have a gig coming up on Saturday, 10/12 at the Strasburg Shoppes (Creamery, Winery and OCB Bakery). Start time is 1:00 PM and will we be playing until 3:00. We would love to have everyone come out and enjoy the b-e-a-utiful fall weather with a glass of wine for the adults, an ice cream Sunday or pastry for the kids and of course, great music provided by yours truly!
We are also looking at getting into a recording studio to get some songs down professionally. Our hope and plan is to have a quality demo (better then Abe sitting around his Mac trying to figure out Garageband!) Looking forward to it and I am sure we will have a lot of cool updates as we get closer to that day!
Lots of exciting things are going on with the Band! For one, please look at our calendar as we are booking new shows all the time. We have gigs coming up at Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse (ha, ha, ha) and we’ll be back at the Strasburg Shoppes for the annual autumn celebration.
Also, we have put our name into the ring to compete for a spot opening for the WIOV Fall Fest in October. If we would win, we would get the opportunity to open the Fall Fest and play for upto 100,000 people! WHOA!! So let’s send messages, emails and whatever else we can to WIOV’s home office in Ephrata and let them know you want to hear Dusty Fender at Fall Fest!!!
As always, we appreciate all of your support. We absolutely LOVE playing music for you all and look forward to seeing you out at one of our shows soon!!!
This Friday, we will be at the Strasburg Shoppes (Creamery, Winery, and OCB Bakery) from 7-9. Hope y’all can come out!!
The way we should live our lives…
Thank you for visiting Dusty Fender! We are a new, exciting duo, based in Lancaster, PA. We love all music, and strive to play many different genres, including Country, Blues, R&B and Rock, all with our own little twist!
We look forward to seeing out. Please check out our calendar and biographical information to learn more about us…and of course our pictures and song lists! And if you are out and see us, please stop by and say hi!
